    you should have got some software with it, or at least all the discs i have bought have come with their own drivers. try installing those and see if you can format then..

    Does the flash drive show up in My computer? If that drive shows up in My Computer, then R-click the drive and select format from the menu. Select FAT32 as the file system, hopefully this will help.
